Question: What are some tips for selling art?
Answer: Hi K, selling art can be a challenging but rewarding process. As an artist who has built my business over 15 years, I have found that there are a few tips that can help navigate the process:
1. Create art that is meaningful to you. This should be your guiding principle as it will help you stay focused and motivated. Knowing your "why" is a powerful tool for making decisions.
2. Strive to do your best work. Rather than trying to cover too many areas, focus on your craft and become an expert in your field.
3. Don't wait for perfection. Share your work even if it's not 100% perfect. Waiting for perfection can hold you back and prevent you from making progress.
4. Connect with people, businesses, and organizations that align with your values. Building relationships and a network of support can open up new opportunities.
5. Prioritize relationships with your customers. Focus on providing exceptional customer service and delivering on your commitments. This can help build trust and loyalty with your buyers.
6. Define what success means to you. Everyone's definition of success is different, so it's important to clarify what it means to you. Stay focused on your long-term goals and don't get discouraged by temporary setbacks.
I hope these tips are helpful in your journey as an artist.
